This is a nice rift- to plain-sawn board of Texas Bodark. The color is the strong golden-yellow of Bodark heartwood, with a surface patina developing of the deeper medium brown and golden tones of aged bodark. Note that the color variations on the surface (like in photo 2) do not penetrate -- the internal color is uniform throughout.
The edges on this block have a bit of wane, as shown in the close-up photos. This will turn right off on the lathe. The wane is associated with a thin, surface-parallel fracture that is at maximum depth about 1/2" deep. I see no other cracks, checks, or significant flaws.
We've discounted the block a bit (20%) due to the wane area.
